Stuart has a piece on the difference in treatment of small business in the UK and the US, no real surprises here but still a timly reminder – here just one small fact:
In the USA a minimum of 23% of government contracts are awarded to small businesses compared to less than 4% in the UK.
You should read the rest on Stuart’s blog. We can not hope that the Government is going to join our On-demand Small Business Infrastructure anytime soon.
